Robert Redford takes a hike, literally, in a genial broad-strokes comedy based on writer Bill Bryson’s 1998 account of his attempt to walk the Appalachian Trail. At 79, Redford is three decades older than Bryson was at the time, but he still has a rugged vitality—and that signature swirl of cinnamon hair. Nick Nolte, as his reluctant companion, is markedly less fit: He looks and sounds like a bear woken up mid-hibernation. Their odd couple interplay propels a series of shambling, expletive-laden mishaps that aim more for easy laughs than Wild epiphanies. B
